Gaming season is in full swing as thousands lined up at stores around the country just for the chance to own Sony's (NYSE:SNE) new PS4 console, which went on sale at midnight. Microsoft's (NASDAQ:MSFT) competing Xbox One goes on sale next week.
Who will sell more? Fool analysts Tim Beyers and Nathan Alderman give Sony the edge in the pilot episode of Geekstock, The Motley Fool's new web show in which we talk about the big-money names behind your favorite movies, toys, video games, comics, and more.
Nathan says a more efficient build that includes a standard x86 chipset should attract independent developers to the PS4. A must since the console is launching with fewer titles than the Xbox One. Tim agrees, positing that gamers may also have not forgotten (or forgiven) how Microsoft initially wanted to make it harder to share or trade-in used games.
Do you agree? Did you purchase a PS4 today, or are you holding out for the Xbox One? Please watch the first five minutes of the interview with host Alison Southwick to get Tim and Nathan's full take, and be sure to check back here throughout the weekend for more Geekstock segments.
